Following a seizure, deltaFosB remains in the hippocampus for an extensive period of time. Researchers believe this may contribute to memory loss and other cognitive deficits.
Researchers were able to dampen hyperexcitability associated with seizure disorders in rodent models by inducing biochemical alterations with glucosamine, a dietary supplement.
By capturing a cell by cell view of seizures propagating through a mouse brain, researchers discovered neurons fire in a sequential pattern, regardless of how quickly the seizure occurs. The findings confirm seizures are not a result of neurons going haywire.
Newly identified neurons in the reticular thalamus could help shed light on the link between seizures and psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and schizophrenia, a new study reports.
A cannabis derivative reduced seizure frequency by 39% in patients with Dravet syndrome.
A new study explores which of the two main patterns of brain activity may be seen during the onset of an epileptic seizure.
Researchers have identified silent, seizure like activity in the hippocampus of two patients with Alzheimer's disease. They believe the seizure activity could contribute to the cognitive symptoms associated with the disease.
Researchers look at evolving epileptic brain networks to obtain a better understanding of brain activity in those with epilepsy.
Cannabidiol could help cut seizures by half in children and adults with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, an extremely severe form of epilepsy, researchers report.
